Tomas Nagys was born in Lithuania. His professional athletic career and leadership setting started from the moment he was born, since both of his parents were professional athletes in the National Rankings. Tomas came to the United States, the land of opportunity, at the age of sixteen where he immediately established himself as a leader and a winner on and off the court. He won the Alabama State Championship in basketball with Montgomery Catholic High, for the first time in the high school’s history. After playing just one year of high school basketball in the United States, Tomas was offered a full scholarship to play for most of the major Division I Colleges and Universities. His choice was Clemson University. Tomas was an exceptional student athlete, great role model and ambassador at Clemson University for four years. After graduating with an International Business Marketing Degree with a minor in Sports Management, Tomas continued to follow his heart and passion. Tomas was blessed and honored to play the game of basketball for the Lithuanian Junior National team, as well as, be a captain and a true leader of many well-known professional basketball clubs in Euroleague for more than ten years (Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Kuwait and Iran), besides playing NBA summer leagues. Tomas had a very long and successful career at the highest level because he always took care of his body with the latest innovative fitness and wellness products and services. He also understood the importance of nutrition, as well as the proper recovery aspects. His consistency with a ‘Healthy Way of Living’ model was a great success for many years, transpiring into a new chapter in his life once he decided to hang up his basketball shoes. Tomas naturally gravitated towards the Health and Fitness field and became a Global Ambassador in the Wellness and Fitness industry. He coached, trained, lead, managed and owned numerous high-end health and fitness clubs as well as consulted with some of the very best in the industry, training many professional athletes and celebrities. Tomas has settled in Naples with his wife, Irina and 3 children, Nigel, 9 and three-year-old twins Nia and Nixon.
